Question On Certification Authority *.vo.msecnd.net?


Recommended Posts

I'm sorry to bother you, however, I was not sure were to place this question, so I started here.

On my older desktop computer with OS Windows ME I received the dialog box-----Certificate Information. I was asked to validate certificate authority *.vo.msecnd.net for the period 4/14/2014 to 4/13/2016. This was issued by: MSIT Machine Auth CA 2, Baltimore Cyber Trust Root, Microsoft Internet Authority. This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certification authority. Please advise if *.vo.msecnd.net is a valid certificate authority? Should I okay this CA? Thank you.

Wow! Windows ME dates back to the previous century!


Of the domains listed, you are probably missing the Baltimore CyberTrust root certificate, since Microsoft started replacing the much older GTE CyberTrust root with the Baltimore CyberTrust root about 3 or 4 years ago.


vo.msecnd.net is owned by Microsoft (It's actually a domain used by/for the Windows Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN)


I think it's also used by Hotmail.


You should be able to download and install the Baltimore CyberTrust root certificate from here https://cacert.omniroot.com/bc2025.crt
